|The mystery of the Mansbridge pump|
|Friday, 04 November 2016 10:35|
Gil Shelley writes to ask if any readers know who is responsible for this large blue diesel pump on the towpath by the river at Mansbridge, and why it’s there?
Mr Shelley initially observed that the pump, which is the size of small van, seemed to be “chucking out diesel fumes 24/7 despite pumping fresh air rather than water”, but after another visit said that “it is pumping water just from one drain to another, the implication being that it is passing an underground blockage”.
He says the Environment Agency, Southern Water and the council have all told him that the pump, which appears to be owned by a hire company in Fareham, is nothing to do with them.
He’s contacted the company to see if they will explain more.
